Small but significant
It's me, Hannah!
We might not be as large as the Islamic community, but our voice has a right to be heard and our voice stands with Israel & her people, right now, despite the upsurge in Anti-Semitism. As that placard says the loyalty and commitment of British Jews to Britain & her Queen has never been in doubt. We have contributed so much to British life, despite being a tiny minority.Our contributions have been positive and we have lived here as a group since 1658, maintaining our religion, whilst also integrating into wider society.
Here is a link to of British Jews who have significantly contributed to society. You will note that when it comes to science , politics, writing &entertaining, these have their own pages, given the lists are so large. All this from a minority which has never been more than 1% of the total British population!
Which is why, now more than ever, I am proud to describe myself as a Jew and a British Jew of the Sephardim in particular.
G-d Save the Queen !
G-d defend Israel !
